It was not surprising when thousands of Glo subscribers defied the heavy down pour to attend the wave-making musical concert, Glo Slide n Bouce in Egbeda.
The residents of the satellite community in Lagos had waited so long to have their share of the show which was held in Ikeja last week.
De Santos Hotel, venue of the show, marked the second time in three weeks that Glo had hosted a show in the town, having earlier held its comedy show, Glo Laffta Fest, at the Floral Hall of the same hotel.
Aderibigbe Olusegun, a Mechanical engineer, who attended the show with his wife and two daughters, said that with "the way people in my area have been talking of the last show Globacom held here some weeks ago, I promised myself that I will not miss this show. Honestly, I can't recall when last I had fun like this. This is a good outing for me and my family and kudos to Globacom."
Another Glo subscriber, who identified herself as Olajumoke Adigun, said "Globacom has a peculiar way of doing things. I am having fun here and the show is bam. It will remain in my memory for long."
Anchored by popular radio presenter, Jimmy D Hypeman, the Egbeda edition of the Glo Slide 'n' Bounce concert paraded some of the brightest entertainers in the nation's entertainment industry such as Ego, Di'Ja, Reekado Banks and Flavour.

Next came Di'ja, who serenaded the crowd with her sonorous voice as she sang her hit tracks including "Awww". She was joined by her Marvin Records colleague, Reekado Banks, thus changing the tempo of the concert. Flavour, who capped the night, was simply amazing in his performance as he got the audience dancing and singing along to his hit tracks.
Besides the known stars, a legion of up and coming artistes from the locality such as Raize Roof, Doel Stunner, Ismalech Afefe, Big Magana, Felix Handsome, Supa Rymes, Black Model, Arinze, Rafael, King Salvage and Adeboi were given opportunities to showcase their talents. There was also a dancing competition which was open to all age categories, with the winners receiving Glo gift bags.
